Sorry I haven't posted anything on the nursery yet. It's been sorta touch-and-go playing musical furniture, trying to get stuff out of there (it was our office) so we could paint and prep. Happy to say it's now painted (thanks for your help, Dad!) and we have a crib! (or, what Jonny has been calling "Red's bed")
In this color:
(sorry for the fuzzy thumbnail)
And we have this crib set up.
Couldn't resist the Jenny Lind.
Besides that? Nada, yet.
This is going to be her room (on move-in day):
Remember with the weird painted mirrors, that were on top of the single grasscloth'd wall in our entire house? We had those removed during the laundry room extravaganza, and the wall was sanded and smoothed, ready for a fresh coat of paint.
Here's the room mid-painting:
Aren't those windows great?
This bedroom is right next to ours, connected by a bathroom (back there on the right). The crib will be maybe 10 steps away from where I sleep. Thus, I don't think I'll be using a bassinet right at first (as of now).
In the spirit of full disclosure, here's our front living room with twin bed (thanks, Reasons!), drum set (for sale!), and large desk, that had to move from elsewhere so the painting could happen.
So maddening, all this stuff everywhere, but it's slow progress with one of us gone a lot. (And I know, our house has no shortage of ceiling fans!)
I have fabric picked out (with Marthie's help, of course), and still working on chair, rug, light fixture (?), and dresser/changing table combo decision.
It's very fun to dream up and plan all of this, but I have to stop every now and then (remember my post from the other day) and say, Who is this person who is caring so much more about this room than any room she's ever decorated in her entire life? I know it's for my little daughter, but sheesh! Twilight zone, a little.
